  • Summer Enrichment:
    This year, your summer enrichment work will encompass three different assignments for students in English and Math.  This work will be based on skills that we believe as a school will help guide you through the beginning of the upcoming year.  Your summer information and assignments can be accessed from the Middleborough High School website and literature will be sent home with report cards in late June.  All summer enrichment assignments are due on September 9, 2016.
    Additionally, many classes, such as AP Classes will have Summer Work that must be done before the beginning of the new school year.  Please plan yourself accordingly.  A little bit each week and help your achieve success and start the new year strong!
